hi,

i called a local at&t wireless store and most of what they sell are the 
android operating system.
will mobile speak be created for this system or will there possibly be a 
free open source app to make these phones talk?
i would like to get an unlocked phone with no monthly fee off ebay for a low

talk time charge when needed solution.
